Nyokabi Kariũki is a Kenyan composer, sound artist and performer. Her sonic imagination is ever-evolving, spanning across various genres from classical contemporary to experimental electronic music, explorations in sound art, pop, film, (East) African musical traditions and more.

Nyokabi Kariũki will present an intimate solo set where she performs music from her first two records, ‘peace places: kenyan memories’ and ‘FEELING BODY’, as well as some unreleased material. This performance will be the last in her EU/UK tour and bring Kariũki back to Suomenlinna where she previously did a residency at HIAP earlier this year.

Sound artist Moe Mustafa, aka Atheer Soot (أثير صوت), is a Helsinki-based visual artist and Theatre-maker. Moe will present The Topography Soundscape of My Queer Body, sonic research on the artists’ existence within a hybrid masculine system and the hierarchy of desire in homosexual contexts. The project focuses on creating an interconnection between memories and sound, where Moe goes back in time to explore the past, his childhood and translates these memories into an atmospheric and drone sound.

This piece was previously commissioned for our OPEN UP Nicosia curated programme as part of our Creative Europe programme.
